Would have bolted up in her point-to-point but for falling at the last; beaten favourite on debut in a Listed mares bumper at Fairyhouse last Easter; ran no race when pulled up in a Clonmel maiden hurdle in December; clearly much better than she has shown on the track and this could be an ideal opportunity.

Was well clear on sole point' start when falling at the last for Donnchadh Doyle a year ago; reappeared for this yard as favourite for a Fairyhouse mares' Listed bumper in April but was beaten nearly 8l; however, she is clearly held in some regard and should be suited by going back over obstacles; go close.
